      Our client-centered process begins with listening. The better we understand your financial needs, your long-term goals and expectations, as well as your fears and challenges, the better we can customize a sound investment strategy for you. We don’t make assumptions; instead, we listen carefully to your answers when we ask quantitative and qualitative questions such as:


      How did you feel when the market went down last year?
      What are three things you would like to do to for your family to ensure their security for the future?
      What do you wish you could spend more time doing now?

      Next, we do a very detailed and thorough analysis of your answers to structure a wealth plan that is uniquely your own. When we talk with you again, it’s with the goal of helping you understand your choices. We believe it’s our job to unravel the complexities of your financial circumstances and offer simplified strategies that nonetheless take advantage of sophisticated global markets. Keeping your goals in mind, we leverage Morgan Stanley’s best thinking to select investment solutions to comprise your portfolio.

      From then on, our job is to expect and react to change – to changes in your life as well as to changes in the financial markets. Just as no bull market or bear market is permanent, your life can take unexpected dips and curves. Our staff makes sure that we’re in contact as often as you desire, to continue listening to and ensure that your plan remains aligned with your evolving life and objectives.  

      Investment Philosophy

      We make a habit of attending to all the details of your financial life. We believe in diversification and in investment strategies that are characterized by their simplicity, rather than simple solutions.

      The fact is there is no one kind of investment that is always best. In investment portfolios, as in much else, there is safety in numbers.  

      A clear investment process, combined with years of experience, leads to good investment decisions. To that end, we have crafted highly detailed systems to ensure you receive high-quality and consistent service. We provide:

      Personalized investment objectives based on your individual investment goals
      Customized asset allocation around your objectives, including taxes and risk adjusted returns
      Ongoing review and rebalancing to ensure your portfolio stays within your allocation parameters
      Constant communication through quarterly reports and regularly scheduled meetings

      Multigenerational Planning

      One of the issues we tackle when a family has significant assets is how to preserve it for future generations. This can be a surprisingly difficult task. Effective multigenerational wealth management requires a family to tackle the personal issues that determine who should benefit from the wealth, the tax hurdles that stand in the way of its efficient transfer, and the capital markets uncertainties that make it challenging to invest it prudently.

      Our multigenerational planning addresses:

      The amount of funds that the senior generation must retain to meet their lifestyle needs
      The excess capital they have available to give during their lifetimes to descendants or philanthropic causes without jeopardizing their financial security
      A method for optimizing among the array of wealth transfer strategies to determine how best to move the wealth to the desired beneficiaries, at the right time and in the right proportions
      The appropriate pace of lifetime wealth transfer
      A framework for monitoring and revisiting the plan, as markets, tax laws, and family circumstances change

      We understand how to help clients preserve relationships and hold onto assets when they pass among generations of a family. We are skilled at initiating and moving cross-generational financial dialogues forward and helping families create a foundation for passing not just wealth but values from one generation to the next.
